Hi, I like to know , is anyone involved with this webpage: "Paid surveys at home" ie the "Internet Job Placement" www.internetjobplacement.com (From USA ) First payment I paid & they activate the page for me. Then they ask me to upgrade and I paid again so that I can use the rest web pages. Unfortunately after collecting the 2nd payment they DID NOT upgrade my page and can't be bothered , despite sending them 16 emails. Michelle Miller, this is the name of the CEO ! IS THIS A SCAM ??? Anyone knows ? I requested for a REFUND (they said 60 days can be refunded), they never replied. I feel I was cheated ! I'll nEVER going to trust these web pages anymore. What shall I do ?

This is one of the many scams around the internet. If they were legitimate they would either get paid by the company that is being surveyed or you would pay them a percentage of your earnings. In these types of business if they ask for a payment upfront you can be certain that it is a scam

If you are looking for something to earn just by using your internet, you can refer to freelancing jobs like www.freelancer.com or www.odesk.com you can find jobs there with reasonable payment. :)) you do not need to pay for anything just show your skills.

Sounds like a scam to me. They are supposed to pay you for the surveys and not you paying them, to give you surveys. Don't expect anything from them, and i really cannot say if you ever will get your money back. Wish you all the luck for working online.
